My students are third grade, Title I, low income students who don't have a lot in their lives. 90% of my class are learning English and I learn a lot from them about their cultures and their languages.
My students are eager learners and are so willing to redo work to make sure they are successful.
They pride themselves on their hard work and because they are willing to put in to their own education, they do the best they can. However, we can use some more materials in the class to help us grow in our language and science skills.
Many of my students are English Language Learners and they need to be able to focus on their online learning. Headphones allow them to listen to correct pronunciation, improves reading, listening, and speaking skills, and also allows for a quieter learning environment for those not online while others are.
I typically have small group or individual instruction time and the students not with me work on their computers.
Headphones will allow the students in my group to focus on learning better while those on the computers can hear more clearly.
